Hi,

Has anybody from India applied for tourist visitor visa online via Immi Account? I have applied a few days back and was wondering about the processing times.

Thanks,

I used it for my mother-in-law a few months back (pretty much the next day after it became available). It took just under 1 month to get her visa.

Rough timelines:
4th July: Applied
6th July: Request for more info. (complete medicals)
~13th July: Completed Medicals
4th Aug: Grant

Note that it did take the medical centre about 10 days to upload her results so that would have added to the delay.

Thanks Rahul!

I also applied for my in-laws. We did the medicals prior to filing the application. From your timelines it seems that I will likely hear back from DIBP by end of next week.

By the way, what was the duration of stay granted to your mother-in-law?

This would be the first visit for my in-laws and I have applied for 6 months stay. I have shown sufficient funds, but I have come across couple of threads which mention that it is not possible to get 6 months stay for the first time visits. Do you know anything about this?

Thanks,
dkmk

Wow that is fast indeed !!

But applications made from India seem to have a ~1 month processing time on average. There was an article about this in times of india few months back. It is due to the large number of applications received from India. Hopefully the online application facility will bring down the processing times.

Got the tourist visa for my in-laws. It took about 4-weeks. It has a validity of 3 years with condition 8558 (max 12 months in 18 months period).

Hello Guys,

Me and my husband are PR holders since 2014.

I would like to bring our parents from India during the birth of our child due in August this year. Can I apply for their visas (Visitor Visa Subclass 600 ) from Australia ? If yes, can I use my immi account to launch the application for my parents?

Also I had a look at the list of documents required for the visa processing.

Could someone please let me know how much balance should our parents show in their Bank accounts? I can show sufficient funds from my end. Do we still need to show enough funds from my parents account as well?

And what can we provide as an evidence of immediate family members in your home country ? My Brother and family live in India.

Thanks.

Hello Guys,

Please respond if you have recently applied for Visitor visa SC600. Your help will be much appreciated.

I have another question. Should we make 2 separate applications for Father & Mother or one application will do? If yes ,should we show funds for both of them in separate bank accounts? Please help.

Thanks.
